Creature — Leech
Squelching Leeches's power and toughness are each equal to the number of Swamps you control.

Squelching Leeches Discussion
2 weeks ago
with your current lands, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is entirely useless. korlash is best in a deck where most, if not all, of the lands are swamps. same deal with Nightmare, and Squelching Leeches, but those 2 aren't modern viable regardless. not to be mean, but it kinda boggles my mind how you could read "swamps" and think to yourself "almost all my lands should be basic forests". Overgrown Tomb exists you know.
you don't run enough lands and mana ramp to be using all those cmc 4+ cards. land search does not equal land ramp, and the little ramp you do have has a high cmc of its own.

Hey, take a look at my take on the deck:
Maybe Brain Maggots can replace some of the hand disruption to add devotion.
Overall your version is very similar to mine.

Pretty classic monoblack big mana. I love you for including Dauthi Embrace, one of my favorite pieces of tech for mono black.

Hey man, love the deck. Always a fan of Kuro. But I just think that Nightmare and Squelching Leeches don't deserve a slot here. Additionally, Sorin's Vengeance, while flashy, only targets a single player, and ends up being fairly mediocre in EDH. I think you should really consider more boardwipes: Mutilate is phenomenal. Additionally, with Kuro, Pitlord on the battlefield, Horobi, Death's Wail becomes an instant boardwipe. If you want more boarwipes, Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain and Damnation are the way to go. You also might want to consider more targeted removal such as Malicious Affliction. Falkenrath Noble and Victimize also seems mainboard worthy.

As long as you're doing monoblack with lots of black devotion and Swamps, I would also recommend Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Nightmare, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Nightmare Lash, Squelching Leeches, Abhorrent Overlord, Erebos, God of the Dead, Mogis's Marauder, and Sanguimancy.
I think you would have a lot of success in this deck if you made it a little more Voltron-y around Drana. ★★★☆☆ Let me know what you think of the suggestions. Good luck.

As a fellow mono-black player, I've gotta support what you are trying to do, so +1, but I have quite a few suggestions:
I'd highly recommend swapping out Vampire Nighthawk for Gifted Aetherborn, the card is more on curve and would allow you to be more consistent with what you are trying to do since the 2/3s are usually roadblocks by themselves anyway.
I'd move Duress to the sideboard altogether, since you really will noly bring it out for control/combo matchups, the best discard cards are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, but since you are on a budget, Wrench Mind or Distress are the best budget options.
Since you don't have a lot of black mana symbols to take advantage of, I'm unsure if Gray Merchant of Asphodel has such a good pairing with Lashwrithe, I'd honestly reccomend just playing Squelching Leeches, but that's your call.
The deck needs a sideboard plan, I'm sunsure what your matchups are, but good cards for mono black sideboards on a budget are Duress, Pithing Needle, Ratchet Bomb, Nihil Spellbomb, Lost Legacy/Memoricide, Hero's Downfall, Vampire Hexmage, Everlasting Torment, and Rain of Tears.
Let me know if you'd like any more help!

Appreciate the input PyroMechanical! I really like the removal ability of Victim of Night vs creature's deathtouch removal. I am going to throw it on the Maybeboard and give it a bit of thought/run it through some playtests.
Night's Whisper is very tempting compared to Read the Bones. When I was looking at the mana curve and judging which one would fit better, I decided to stick to the utility of Read the Bones - 1 more mana to decide if the top cards would be worth it.
I do like Pack Rat... like a lot! So much that I am going to start another Budget/Modern deck for Rats. However, for this deck, I am going to keep the mana ramp with Squelching Leeches. Thank you again for the comment and improvements!
